Architect Josué Gillet has constructed a prefabricated house in Orgères, France, made from shipping containers according to Dezeen. The design of the Flying Box House emerged from the compact and sloping site and the client's limited budget. The house was built in 3 months by a system developed by local company B3 Ecodesign, which converts shipping containers into modular homes at its Rennes factory.
Three layers of containers are stacked to create a structure that is defined by angular sections removed from the top and bottom floors.
"The project is sliced in three levels, each with a floor area of 100 square metres," said Gillet. "The superposition of those different sequences shapes the house. Now we are able on this little plot to organise a complete programme of the desired urban villa."
